  • "This has been our go to spot for many years. Recently have seen the food, especially the Sunday brunch, quality go down. It almost feels like hotel banquet assembly line on Sundays, other days are still good. The place is beginning to show a lot of wear and tear, but then again who cares. The ambience, the view, the margaritas are the best."

  • "My friend was visiting from Tucson and we wanted her to experience eating by the ocean. Las Brisas was PERFECT. Our wait staff was the best ever ... Oscar was excellent!!!"

  • "Overall, the dining was pleasant. Would recommend this place because of the scenary. Servers were attentive and polite. The only comment to make is please change the greeters. There were 4 of them when we walked in, not one had a smile nor a warm welcome. Very surprised at this!"

  • "We arrived 30 minutes late (bad traffic) for our reservation, but the wait staff seated us quickly at a window table... wow what a view:) The brunch selection is pretty standard, not great but good. However, the cheese in the made to order omelets was floury, almost sandy, making the omelets less than ideal... and 5 of the 7 adults at our table did not eat more than 1/4 of their omelets :( Other food was OK. Overall good value for money.. The view over the ocean and Laguna Beach is excellent and that's why I keep coming back!"

  • "Went for 70th birthday dinner. Had a duo of new young waiters who just relocated to SoCal. They were superb. We had our favorite calamari app, which is very lightly breaded & has a delicate sauce for dipping. We split the Frutas Del Mar - prawns, scallops, fish, & lobster over rice with a saffron sauce & fresh green beans - just yummy. Had the Main Beach Margarita on the rocks - very, very good. Can't resist the ab-fab Mixed Berry Tostada - edible slivered almond shell, ice cream, & fresh berries... ay, carumba! They presented a complimentary Mexican Coconut Flan as well - we devoured everything!"

  • "Las Brisas came highly recommended but it fell short of our excepations. Everything about our experience was just "ok" left us wondering why it's such a local favorite. There are so many restaurants in Laguna my suggestion would be to try another local favorite before Las Brisas."

  • "Las Brisas has an iconic view of the Southern California coastline and it is a must see when dining in Laguna Beach."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "If you want to pick one restaurant in Laguna Beach with a great view, very good food and an attentive wait staff - this is it. I eat here with some regularity. This is the first time for brunch and it was very good. No food line to deal with - they bring it to you. Wonderful!"

  • "When we have guests come into town Las Brisas is one of our must go to spots as the food, view, service is always great! We had a party of 8 and we have been very lucky to get the dining room in the back with Georgio as our Server - he is very professional, knowledgeable, and even remembered us from a previous visit. We were seated exactly on time and never rushed once. Our guests were from Norway and blown away by the friendly staff and fabulous food. Absolutely wonderful evening!"

  • "We reserved for a Party of 8 on a Saturday night. What a great time! It was a night of friends getting together after not seeing each other for a while. Las Brisas made our night exceptional sweet. We were able to enjoy great conversation along with great service and great food. We weren't rushed and even given some hints of things to do after dinner. Las Brisas is definitely a great place to be. Love it and we will be back real soon!"

  • "We brought guests here for a special occasion. I have dietary restrictions and they accommodated all my needs well. The food for everyone was excellently prepared and beautifully presented. Our window table had stunning views. Service was perfect. A wonderful dining experience for us and our guests. We have been here many times and this was the best experience ever. Window seats can only be requested upon arrival. Our 2:00 reservation gave us a quiet, elegant experience."

  • "Restaurant needs a good cleaning and update! Strong smell of ammonia upon entering? Took out of towners there...embarrassed!"

  • "We both thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Las Brisas. Our waiter was charming and efficient. The drinks were good, the dinners superb and the dessert fabulous. And, of course, with the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean, the setting was wonderous."

  • "On a bluff overlooking Laguna Beach, this restaurant is a must-do Southern California experience. At my cousin's recommendation, we decided to dine here after attending the Sawdust Festival. The view is mesmerizing, but only in the daytime. The restaurant is quite large, and you can dine either inside or on the patio. The food was good, if not exactly the best, but the view and service made up for any shortcomings. After dinner, we strolled out to the bluff for the sunset and then down to the beach and a swing around downtown Laguna. It made for a perfect evening."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The food was just average, the place was not sparkling. Too touristy but it was my first trip to Laguna and a short walk from my hotel so was fine. Would not return for a second visit, too many other places to try out."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Been going here for over 15 years and never disappointed. Dinner great inside by the window, outside for drinks. Best view in all of Southern California! Like being on the Mediterranean in Nice, France!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Endless champagne, brunch is a fixed menu but you do have options made to accommodate all eaters; salad, seafood, fruit, Angus steak, etc. We all received a very fresh fruit plate, followed by our choice of the salad or soup of the day (limited to a single salad or soup selection), then choice of about 20 entrees and the dessert of the day. View is spectacular! Despite being busy, we were served very quickly and food was well prepared, and the server was quick on refilling champagne."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I have never left a review before as I am prepared to always make my own decision and go with my own judgement. The reason for this one is this restaurant is a waste of time being on open table. We booked brunch this past Sunday at 1pm. Upon arriving on time we were told we could have a table after two. When we said we had a reservation the hostess was quick to point out that she doesn't even look at reservations nor take them in to account. I'm sure the restaurant is good as it was so busy. Just don't bother reserving if that's their attitude!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The food was delicious, the service on point and attentive, but the noise in this restaurant is very loud. It was difficult to carry a normal conversation because it was so loud. The view, if you can get a table overlooking the ocean, is amazing."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Service & food were excellent. Table was by the window & view was beautiful! Everytime I booked on Open Table, I always get an ideal table!!! If it's your first time in the Laguna Beach area, allow time for traffic. Area is great for walking around at the many, many shops & sandy beach. Wish we knew ahead of time, we would have gone there hours earlier."

  • "My husband and I try to dine at Las Brisas 2 to 3 times a year. Always very good to excellent. Ceviche was over the top delicious. Need to ask for extra chilies to make it right. Seafood preparations were very good, Del Mar and Halibut. Del Mar was a little light on shellfish and fish compared to other times."

  • "From the moment we turned the corner onto Cliff Dr it was a great evening. We found a parking spot out front, walked in and were seated promptly at a window table. Our reservation was 5 pm and so very quiet. By 7 it was obviously much busier. Kyle and Fernando attended to us with great service. Jimmy was gracious and delivered a gift very to us and everything was perfectly attended to all evening. Great job, great service and a happy 26th anniversary celebrated. Las Brisas lives up to and exceeded the high referrals!!!"

  • "We have enjoyed several meals at Las Brisas, and they have all been fabulous. The service is first class, the views are spectacular, and the food is definitely fresh and prepared with care. Whether it's a chicken enchilada or carne asada or fresh fish, every dish is delicious. Don't leave without the chocolate mouse in the almond praline cup!"

  • "Beautiful location for our 47th wedding anniversary. Great meal. Best ceviche we have had. The waiter recommended the asparagus soup. We were leery it would be too spicy, so he brought out a sample, but it had just a slight hint of "kick" but the smoothness one would expect. The coconut flan was a surprise treat. The corn on the cob pieces on the skewer was also a surprise, very tender. The Sole Veracruz was a great mixture of flavors. Attentive service without being intrusive. The later dining hour was a good idea for a pleasant evening."

  • "We truly had a wonderful time! Food, Service and Ambience was Fantastic! We had a window table with the Ocean glistering Sun shining with the delicious food and stupendous service! Thank you to Fernando our server and the Manager checking on us! We will be back!"

  • "Love the view & service, just wish they would expand their menu a bit. So much of the same & nothing really special. Still a great place for out-of-town guests & date night, but if you are a true foodie, you can find other Laguna places w/ better fares."

  • "This was my first visit to Las Brisas. I had heard only good things about the restaurant and I was not disappointed. The experience, the food, the view, the service was truly excellent. Well worth going."

  • "I have heard raves about Las Brisas for many many years and finally went for a birthday dinner. We ate inside unfortunately because I think eating on the patio overlooking the ocean would make the experience so much better. The interior is dated and dumpy. The food is nothing special and in fact I would say none of our dishes was even good. The Frutas del Mar was particularly disappointing, everything was overcooked and not fresh. I have had way better enchiladas and tacos from food trucks. If it had been excellent ambiance and delicious food the expensiveness of the dinner would not have bothered me but as it was, I think it was exceptionally overpriced."

  • "This was the first time I reserved through opentable. I got a confirmation, they seated us promptly and accomodated us with a window seat. The service and brunch were great! It was a good experience for myself and my friend especially since I was treating for her 50th Birthday! She loved it!"
